I voted for Fountain Pen Talk. It would be obvious to people who do not use fountain pens what that sub forum is about.

You guys missed some obvious entries:

Baystate Blue Bickering Forum

The Best Pen is the one No Longer Available Gotten at an Un-obtainably Low Price Forum

How Long to the Bottom of the Ink Bottle Forum

Too Many Pens Loaded with Too Many Inks Forum

What am I going to do with all the Goulet Ink-Drop Samples Forum

... just saying, there are better choices out there than just "Fountain Pen Talk".... sheesh.

Voted. Picked my choice for two reasons:
1. It was my wife's suggested forum title
2. Pen Pals captures the commraderie and freindship exhibited on the current fountain pen thread.

I voted for "The Ink Well". I understand "Fountain Pen Talk" for simplicity's sake, and that would have been my second vote; but I just love the name "Th Ink Well". I love looking at the glass ink wells from days gone by and would love to find some of these out in the wild to start collecting and using with my inks. Not to mention there is that little blurb after the title of the new forum that will inform folks of what the discussion in the forum is about.

On a side note, this sub-forum is a long time coming and I think Freddy for suggesting it again. I thought about bringing it up after "Through the Lens" came about, but decided it was best left buried or to one of the moderators to bring the point up again; and I thank you Freddy for doing just that. This forum, much like "Through the Lens", will explode the moment it's created. It'll be nice to have the Ink Reviews, Pen Reviews, and everything else stored neatly in it's own little thread instead of stacked all in one like it is now...
